Edward Calabrese (U Mass): The Linear Dose Response for Cancer Risk Assessment: A Deep Dig Into Its Historical Foundations
Tuesday 11 August 2020, 12:00pm - 01:00pm

The linear no-threshold (LNT) single-hit (SH) dose response model for cancer risk assessment is assessed with respect to its historical foundations. This presentation also examines how mistakes, ideological biases, and scientific misconduct by key scientists affected the acceptance, validity, and applications of the LNT model for cancer risk assessment. The analysis argues that the LNT single-hit model was inappropriately adopted for governmental risk assessment, regulatory policy, practices, and for risk communication.
